Summary
"While a massive body of literature has been devoted to the last of the Romanovs, The Court of the Last Tsar is the first book to examine the people, mysteries, traditions, scandals, rivalries, and riches that were part of everyday life in the last two decades of the Romanov dynasty. This illustrated volume removes the mystery with twenty-four pages of color photos; more than eighty black-and-white photos; floor plans of the tsar's Winter Palace, the Alexander, Palace, and the Grand Kremlin Palace; a map of St. Petersburg; and plans of the imperial parks at Tsarkoye Selo and Peterhof."
Summary
Having written several previous books about the Romanovs, King here fleshes out the romantic story of Nicholas and Alexandra--so beloved to anti-communists--by placing them within the frame of their palaces, wealth, clothing, jewelry, yachts, country estates, and court ceremonies. He considers the period between 1894 when Nicholas mounted the throne, to 1914 when the Great War tarnished the vision. Black and white photographs of the period are augmented with color photographs of places now. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
